My Dawson literally gave me my life back
Hello, I am a mother fleeing an abusive partner. I am staying in a woman's shelter in Nanaimo, with my son, and looking for a pet-friendly home. My dog is part of my family, and I will not give her up.
Sylvester Stallone: This is me and Butkus, living in a flophouse. Since I never went out, I relied on his companionship.
My two cats, Freddie and Frankie, know when I'm depressed, and they cuddle and calm me. My 11-year old grandson, who is autistic, loves my cats and they calm him, too. For those of us who need the benefits of having pets, I hope BC changes the RTA. I would be dead without my little feline family.
